Hey up, you've been having a grand day out on the lovely Yorkshire coast! Picked a nice day for it, mind you it's always hot and sunny south of the Tees. ;)

It certainly was a grand day, pleasantly warm in the sun and the smell of chips, doughnuts, hot dogs and shellfish in the breeze.
What's not to like. :D :D :D

The old lady is now static as a 'Dunkirk Museum Ship' at Scarborough

I hate people giving incorrect information as per her display plate
RegalLadyPlate080822.jpg

as she was never 'commissioned into the Royal Navy', there never was an 'HMS OULTON BELLE'
as the entry on our shipbuilding site shows, she was requisitioned and then purchased by the Ministry of War Transport
